One of my favourite Hitchcock's. An attempt of an almost perfect crime that disregard that there's always be a human factor inevitability. Suspenseful and the plot within the plot kept me guessing to its last moments.
Re-watched. Compelling how Hitchcock made a real film out of a play. That is with stunning visual ideas, like this shot-reverse shot on Kelly when she lies (her eyes hesitating between the inspector and her husband behind him) or those two kisses in the beginning to tell all about adultery in an eye-blink. Great rhythm, tension, and witty dialogues that reminded me of Lubitsch. Almost a variation on "Rope".
